Very interesting and relevant comment from readers which caused me to record them. Unfortunate that I am using one of the better ministers as an example. It could have been any of them perhaps excepting Tharman.
Don't bother to take the minister's words too seriously. We know they often indulge in "talk is shiok". If we take their advice then there must at least be 48 hours to a day. Impossible.
Alvin is spot on. It is the employer and bosses that is holding us back. He who pays the piper calls the tune! This government is not prepared to have decisive policies to catalyze the needed change. Like I said, "talk is shiok". They have taken to a strategy of numerous band aid these days. I tried to restrain myself but when I saw them distributing N95s to the old and the poor, I thought part of the reason was to look good because we have been lambasting them for sometime their neglect of the vulnerable.
I assume none of those who provided their pointed comments were at the OSC.
This government has devolved to with our generous help very good at problem description. As for solutions we demand more transparency and accountability before we can contribute practical ideas.
Don't waste time fixing the Opposition (should change that noun description) and solve real and pressing problems. Not band aid.
